Asaph Mwebaze who spent more than a decade managing Maroons will now be in the opposite dugout on the day just like goalkeeper Simon Tamale who crossed to the Prison Warders from Stars in the window.

Both had a good start to the season with today’s hosts securing a point off champions Vipers at Kitende while the visitors returned to the UPL in style as they dismantled Busoga United 5-0.
